Our first on RCCL however we had done our fair share of cruise around the world with different cruise lines. Over all the ship was OK Food was very good in (included) eating laces). The buffet had great amount to chose from.Better than Princess.The main dining room was very quashed with no room between tables. Breakfast service was a shambles some morning in the dining room. The entertainment was very hit and miss (most a miss ! ). Using the atrium for much of the entertainment was frustrating as there is very little seating and could have been used in the Colony Club (which had little going on at any given time. Lectures were at 9 am ! There fore little attended. The over all condition of the ship was good , better than Princess keeps their ships . The N-virus appeared about half way through the cruise and they announced 35 cases had come to the med-centre ,though since the cruise ended I have read on the net that that went up to 75 and the following cruise embarkation was delayed till 3 pm to start . Ports of call in NZ and Australia were all good, though Bay of Islands was cancelled with no refund. The large outside cabin 3032 was a 4 berth one which was comfortable ,the carpet looks to be well over due for a clean (shampoo),but the cabin was serviced twice a day as you would expect. We had a last minute deal and with that deal in mind , we were happy

Cabin Review

Cabin 3032
Light and kept tidy twice a day.The carpet was grubby looking.
No hair conditioner provided and soap had to be asked for at one stage.
No night chocolates.
Very hard beds.
Though a 4 berth cabin ,there were only two of us.Limited wardrobe space would have made it hard for 4 people.
